The Curious Case at McGuffin’s

Enter and discover the History of MacGuffin’s

Your boss, the legendary P.I. needs you to break into McGuffin’s book store and get the mysterious book that everyone wants to get their hands on. Finally a chance to show your worth. McGuffin himself is at the dentists, but that doesn’t give you much time to find what you’re looking for and escape!

Moriarty’s Academy

Will you prove yourselves Masterminds,

After many years of hard study it is time for your final exam. Five challenges across the myriad disciplines of modern villainy stand in your way. You only have one hour to prove yourselves worthy to graduate from Moriarty’s Academy.

Player Testimonials

Brilliantly put together rooms. Really creative and thoughtful clues. We did the jewellery heist twice! Excellent variation of puzzles for all different skill types. Wonderfully friendly staff/owner who clearly have a huge passion for what they do. Can't wait to see what they come up with next!

The Room was really well planned, lots of puzzles to keep us busy. We took 2 teenagers and it was perfect for all of us. The staff were friendly and helpful. Its easy to find and has plenty of parking. We came out absolutely buzzing and we will be going back to do their other room!

Excellent! My son was invited to a birthday party there they thoroughly enjoyed it and managed to escape with 15 seconds left on the clock!

Great location, friendly welcoming staff, very enjoyable rooms, great for groups!
